Trees!

Well, we just keep spending money like we have it or something.

You know about the $3500 fence. I'll post pics when it's up (a couple of weeks).

Well, today we went back to Fackler's and bought a Red Horse Chestnut tree and a Red Oak -- which will grow to be as tall as the Sears Tower. (Ok, well, either that or 60-70 feet.) We need trees in our back lot as the wind is just devastating in the winter. And we need some shade help in the summer. This was all part of the deal when we decidesd to build a house in the middle of what was a corn field.

But those two trees plus delivery and installation (doing this myself in clay soil..um, no) has run us another $700.

Yikes.
